Educational Handouts

iTherapy in conjunction with the American Speech-Language Hearing Association (ASHA) offer educational handouts to the public, parents and our community. The informational handouts have been created to reflect current health literacy principles. They are intended to be used as a tool to help professionals communicate more clearly with clients and their families about speech, language and swallowing disorders in a clear, reader-friendly manner.

Each handout gives background information on a specific topic, fast facts, tips, how to get help and stories or comments from other parents.

Each of the 38 handouts is intended to provide a starting point for conversations with parents, teachers, caregivers and other professional. They are not intended to be an exhaustive description of the topic or to replace face-to-face client counseling.
